I am not related, just sharing.

Perhaps St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Pakenham, Lanark Co. has records.
It appears that you can add Jane's birthdate and family members to your chart.

Quite by accident I came across this fiche and many unanswered questioned were answered. I know there are others trying to sort which Wilson is which Wilson so thought I'd share this information to aid in the sorting. If anyone has questions re: the Descendants of Robert Wilson and Jane Russell, I may be able to help.

How old was your John McVicar? I have the following...

Alexander McVicar (b. ? 1769, d. *Pakenham ON, 1851*) Jean Donald (b ? 1771)
Mary McVicar (b.Glasgow, 1806)

....who came to Ontario between 1806 and say 1830. Mary married David Leckie, b.1799, and they settled in Burnstown.

I have no info on Alexander's parents or g-parents; could he have been your John's brother? Or perhaps your John was very old, and my Alexander was one of his children?
